Orchid show, Part 2

Mae had had enough after about 2 seconds. This fountain area was about 3/4 of the way through the gardens. I asked her to sit for a minute while I took a picture of her. This is the 4th attempt to get her to smile. You know it's a losing battle when she mutters, "I'm not frowning. Can't we just get out of here already?" I deleted the others. You don't need to see what I deal with every day.

Steven took this picture. Finally. Bill and I had just about exhausted our fake smiles and were going to jump forward to show Steven which button to push to take the darn picture already. 

Bill wouldn't let us leave without having me take this picture. He insisted. Can you guess what he found so amusing? Hint: look where his hands are... sigh. So immature.
